Lets start by saying this is not something I would have thought of picking up in a shop before. Don’t get my wrong, I really like Nicki Minaj. I think she is daring, bold and very good at what she does but when it comes to celebrity perfumes, I am always a little bit put off, and snobby I guess. I always feel that the thought and care that goes into a bottle of Hermes, Chanel or Viktor and Rolf is overshadowed by the synthetic fluids they stick in a quick bottle of celeb scent. However, I think I might have been proven totally wrong.
I am a big fan of bright, sweet and fruity smells, so I love the likes of Flowerbomb, Escada and Miss Dior. The new Nicki Minaj Pink Friday scent is a blend of sweet florals with base notes of vanilla which I personally adore. The top notes and the immediate scents are starfruit and mandarin so you get a bright burst of fruit that blend into the heart notes of jasmine petals and gardenia. In other words, the perfume starts out bright and fruity and blends down into a more subtle floral mix. If you are a fan of fruity scents like I am, then this is something you should definitely try. I have had so many compliments on this already and I have taken to wearing it every day since I got it. I think you will be very pleasantly surprised.
